Liverpool have not made any headway under Jurgen Klopp, says Alan Shearer

"It's actually easy to explain, we played good football in the first-half and missed big chances", Klopp told Sky Sports.

Klopp spoke with confidence ahead of the EFL Cup clash, despite three matches on the bounce without a victory, but goals from Shinji Okazaki and Islam Slimani sent the Foxes into the next round of the competition.

Is Klopp feeling some pressure?

Also on Tuesday, Roy Hodgson's Palace play Huddersfield at Selhurst Park after a 1-0 defeat to Southampton saw them become the first Premier League side to lose their first five games and fail to score.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain made the somewhat surprise move from the Emirates Stadium to Anfield on deadline day this summer, having rejected a new contract with the Gunners. The performance tonight sadly let him down. More often than not they were created as a result of a raid down the Liverpool left, where Andrew Robertson wreaked havoc up against Daniel Amartey, Leicester's makeshift right-back.

Obviously we should heed medical advice across the season and rest him when he needs it, but the priority should be getting him on the pitch as much as we can. We have a lot of players who are actually in good shape but haven't had match starts so far. "No, of course Danny Ward will play tomorrow if nothing happens overnight". He then made another bright dart to goal but his cross was wayward and easily collected again. Yes, Klopp needs alternatives and more defensive preparation, but sacking him and returning to old-school British football can not bring Liverpool to the next level.

Tonight he showed exactly why he deserves an extended run in the team, finding lots of joy going forward and whipping several wonderful deliveries in that his teammates really should have finished off, particularly early on. So we have to see how we can line up at centre-half - is Joe a centre-half or full-back?

Liverpool had dominated the first half, with Philippe Coutinho orchestrating the attacks from midfield, but the visitors struggled after the Brazil playmaker was substituted at halftime.

Burton face the daunting task of a trip to Old Trafford on Wednesday, 11 years after they held United to a 0-0 draw at home in the FA Cup before losing the replay 5-0.
